What an odd episode. Yes, there was progress and yes I learned quite a bit more about the characters, but at the same time it feels as though very little happened. This is probably just me overthinking things again though.
Arata has become more serious than ever about magic. He is asking questions, practicing until he drops and he doesn’t joke as much anymore. That being said, why does it feel as though very little of that actually happened? I did not see him train. I did not see him learn new things. I basically saw the same thing that I’ve been seeing since the beginning; the protagonist getting into trouble by getting a bit too close to the girls even though sometimes it isn’t his fault. What happened to the things he had learned? Why skip over something so important?
I just don’t understand it. What is the point of this episode? The only scene that I might actually try to remember was when Lilith lost the top part of her bikini and Arata, whom happened to be around again, got a nice eyeful of those busty melons of her, causing Lilith to go berserk and blast him away again. This stuff has pretty much become a routine.
At least the next episode seems to be quite interesting. It seems that Arata, thanks to the headmaster’s teleportation, finally found Hijiri again. Have they arrived in another world? Or did Hijiri simply vanish to another part of the same world? I feel as though we’re about to get a lot of answers to our many questions during the next episode.Read More
A very predictable, but enjoyable episode this turned out to be. It finally seems that there is a point to this story. It’s not about the protagonist and his quest to find and rescue his friend and to create the perfect harem for himself.
So that busty blonde invaded the school all on her own in order to get even stronger. She used her lewd body to distract the headmaster in order to beat him, after which the headmaster, quite obviously, pretended to be defeated by her when he caught a little glimpse of her breasts. The sad part is that I cannot blame him. My jaw would’ve probably detached itself from my head in order to fall on the floor (in the anime world, of course). Still, I cannot accept the fact that that man did so little in order to ensure the safety of his students. He basically gave up to let Arata do all the work.
Obviously, Arata needs to get stronger fast. He took control of Lieselotte’s magic (or at least that which made her a demon lord candidate) and is now on his way to become one of the strongest mages around. He couldn’t have done it without Sora, his grim moiré, though. Not at all surprising that she materialized into a teenage girl. Stuff like that is obvious in these stories.
Not only does Arata need to get stronger in order to find Hijiri, his friend, but he needs to master that time control magic in order to bring back Lieselotte. He always needs to get stronger in order to fight off the evil mages that are currently making their way to that school of his. Finally, a clear goal. Things should get better from here on out.Read More
Quite the hectic episode. I also found it rather difficult to follow because certain things did not make sense or seemed rather unnecessary. All in all not a bad episode though. My interest in that headmaster has definitely grown.
So Lieselotte, the seventh and final member of the Trinity Seven group, revealed herself last week and made it quite clear where she stands. She wants power and knowledge, which are really the same thing, and doesn’t mind going to extreme lengths to obtain it. It doesn’t bother her to be known as a dark mage. She just seems to go through anyone that stands in her way. I like that. I don’t care what people think about that character. I’ve seen remarks about the way she is dressed and the way she talks, but I like that character quite a lot.
Also, I finally have a favourite character on the show. Levi is my number one. The way she talks is awesome, her ninja way is cool, her “Magus Mode” outfit is very friendly on the eyes and she doesn’t go head-on for the protagonist like all the others characters. She is definitely the greatest character on this show.
Anyway, I still cannot accept that Lieselotte stole Arata’s power like that. What’s was the point of it all? I wouldn’t mind if that headmaster showed us what he’s capable of and took care of Lieselotte. Just capture her. She launched a full-scale attack on the school so I don’t think she’ll be walking away as though it never happened.Read More
Another interesting (and satisfying) way to start off an episode. Trinity Seven is quite good at those. It is also one of the many usable examples of why Japanese people should use as little English as possible in anime. That “come on” was pretty much the only reason why I laughed at that scene.
So the harem is getting to its climax, huh? Six of the seven girls have already been assembled and are now fighting over Arata. The amount of fan service in this episode was enough to make you feel quite queasy, but I got past that and saw how loli’s and busty mages in bloomers were going nuts during P.E. in order to catch that guy’s attention. It just goes to show that the female sex is interesting in guys with either power or money or both, seeing as money and power are pretty much the same thing. They would all lose interest if he were to lose that grim moiré of his.
It came as no surprise to me that they finally introduced the seventh and final member of the so-called Trinity seven. Neither was it a surprise that Selina and the seventh member were connected somehow. They focussed so much on Selina that there had to be something to it. Why else bring in a character like that in pretty much every episode?
I must say that I find Lieselotte, the seventh member of the Trinity Seven, quite interesting. She is daring, bold and powerful, seeing as she, too, is one of those demon lord candidates by stumbling upon some kind of ancient magic. This puts a nice spin on the story instead of continuing that pointless harem that Arata has got going right now.Read More
I knew it. The protagonist couldn’t just become an almighty mage overnight just because he can copy people’s powers. That would’ve been awesome ridiculous. Yes, this makes a little bit more sense I guess. Doesn’t it?
Surprising episode, I must say. Or was it? They focussed so much on Yui and her bizarre condition that there had to be something to it. I suppose it would only be a matter of time before something went wrong, but for it to happen right away is just… disappointing? What bothers me most is that it seems that almost anyone can cause one of those disasters. It first I thought it was only Arata since he was a special case, but now everyone with strong magical powers seems to be making that list, which means that the headmaster and the Trinity Seven (and other characters like them) pretty much come to mind.
So… Arata needs to meet certain conditions before he can uses someone else’s powers, it seems. I guess they didn’t really bother telling us what those conditions could be, but my guess is that the person whose powers he plans on using needs to give his or her consent before he can actually them, which makes his ability a bit less amazing.
What happens now? Well… I imagine that Arata has quite a few more days to enjoy his harem whilst more and more characters start to fall for him. First it was Lilith, then Arin and now Levi. It’s a matter of time before the rest follows in their footsteps. That’s the problem with stories like these; the general idea is all too obvious.Read More
